Imma Sàrries

I am a midwife. I studied for my specialisation in the UK, where I was awarded First Class Honours. Then I was chosen among 120 midwives from the hospital where I worked, the Royal Berkshire Hospital, to be part of the12 midwives founding team to run the new Hospital’s Birth Centre.

 

I have a daughter who was born at home in 2003 who breastfed for 4 years by mutual desire; and a son who was born at home in 2012 who breastfed for 5 years by mutual desire.


I currently live in Barcelona where I work as independent midwife, offering the following services:


-Support and monitoring of pregnancy
-Preparation for Childbirth and Motherhood 
-Home-Birth
-Labour Care (for women who wish to give birth at hospital)
-Support during the postpartum period
-Breastfeeding Support 
-Shiatsu for Motherhood
-External Version for breech presentation with non-invasive methods

Throughout this website, all the references mentioned will give you the chance to see that the way I work is meticulously based on scientific evidence.
The main reason why I became a midwife was to promote and provide care for normal births (International Confederation of Midwives, 2017).  I love my job and I always try to implement a salutogenic approach to birth (Plested, 2014; Downe and McCourt, 2008), caring for each birth within its unique normality.


Before graduating as a midwife, I graduated in Barcelona as a nurse at the EUIFN, Blanquerna University where I got 13 ​​honour grades.
 

I am a  Breastfeeding Advisor.

I was a Doula for over 12 years.
I am a Zen Shiatsu therapist specialised in maternity.


I speak and write Catalan, Spanish and English, and I have a fairly good level of spoken German and French.
